Unless you live under a rock (or have completely avoided social media and/or the Internet for a couple of weeks), you've probably already heard that this year's edition of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show is heading to Paris for the first time, which will make for a holiday extravaganza unlike anything we've seen before when it airs on December 5th.
This year's event was shrouded in more mystery than usual, with a very gradual rollout of the location, the lineup of models and the musical performers. And after Lady Gaga, The Weeknd and Bruno Mars were recently announced as this year's musical performers, we couldn't wait to find out which models will take the runway during their epic performances. With 52 models in all, this is the largest group of girls in the show's 21-year history. But thanks to diligent agents, entertainment publications and fan accounts that took to social media with exciting announcements, we've pieced together most of the cast for the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
The most exciting part? Aside from having 18 newcomers join the cast – we're looking at you, Bella Hadid – as well as a solid crew of returning regulars (Liu Wen), and of course, the Angels, this year's show includes a few of L'Oreal Paris' very own muses. And while we're sad that new moms Candice Swanepoel and Behati Prinsloo are sitting this show out, we can't wait to see the L'Oreal muses hit the runway, with Jasmine Tookes wearing the Eddie Borgo-designed, $3 million Fantasy Bra.
So, while you wait for the festivities to begin, why not get familiar with a few of the L'Oreal muses that you'll see strutting their stuff in Paris? Read on to find out who will be walking in this year's VS Fashion Show!
THE L'OREAL MUSES WALKING IN THE 2016 VS FASHION SHOW
She's no stranger to the runway, but Russian supermodel Irina Shayk is a newcomer to the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show runway. The L'Oreal muse will be walking in the show for her first time ever this year, and though she hasn't posted any reactions to her Instagram account, Irina participated in a Victoria's Secret Fashion Show interview in which she admitted how superstitious she is!

Brazilian supermodel and L'Oreal Paris muse Luma Grothe was chosen to walk in the 2016 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show for her first time ever!
